Notary offices across the US have been making a big push to make it easier for Americans to use their banks accounts.

A few weeks ago, the city of Los Angeles became the first in the US to officially become an official notary for citizens.

Now, in New York, the New York Notary Association has become the first notary on the New Yorkers’ behalf, allowing citizens to access their accounts via a phone app and using the notary to sign documents and pay bills.
